Oral History Volunteers Needed!
The Milton High School junior class in conjunction with The Gathering Place are once again planning their annual Oral History Project. The students are required to interview senior citizens for this inter-generational project. Students may ask questions such as: Where were you born? How did you celebrate holidays when you were growing up? What do you remember from WWII or the Vietnam years? This is a huge project for the students and for The Gathering Place. Interviews will take place Friday, May 18. If you are interested in participating please sign up at the reception desk.
